Music 700

Course offerings in music are designed to give each student an integrated approach to theory, history, music technology, composition, electronic music, and performance--experience in all these areas being essential to the understanding of music as an artistic and intellectual achievement. Theory courses allow the student to work with musical material, to understand modes of organization in composition, and to employ methods of musical analysis. History courses introduce students to methods of studying the development of musical genres and the relationship of music to the other arts and areas of thought. Composition and songwriting courses introduce students to methods of style, structure, and organization of musical material. Students develop performing skills through private study and through participation in the choir, madrigal ensemble, Gospel choir, Big Band, performance ensembles, and jazz ensemble or one of many rock and pop ensembles. Ongoing concerts in the Mallery Concert series and the Electric Café series, as well as Symphony in C concerts, feature renowned musicians and provide an opportunity for students to be exposed to a rich variety of music styles. Major core and track requirements can be completed only through face-to-face classes.

For students interested in musical theater, please see Theater 965.

Applied Music 701

The aim of performance studies is to present music as a liberal art, for its value as literature, and as a record of one aspect of human achievement. The music program offers instruction in instrumental and vocal music with a distinguished faculty of artist associates. Music students are expected to acquire and improve performing techniques as a necessary means of cultivating the art. Music majors enrolled in applied music are required to meet and demonstrate clearly regulated student outcomes through juried examination each semester. Should a student not meet the standards set by the department, the level must be repeated. Note that an additional student fee for private instruction is required.
